The pandemic left the nation with a heightened desire to connect with nature and the outdoors. It’s an understandable response to lockdown and enforced isolation, particularly for those without gardens or outdoor space, and it’s why the UK has seen unprecedented demand for properties in rural locations or with plenty of outdoor amenity. It makes sense that this trend would impact office interior design too. As the return to the office continues it’s important for employers to sate our collective need for access to nature, even at work.
This is all wrapped up in the concept of the Destination Office – a space which employees actively gravitate to because it gives them access to the experiences and facilities they can’t get elsewhere. There’s a huge amount of business benefit in making access to nature part of the destination office experience too. Better access to nature through biophilic design helps with improving creativity, boosting concentration, reducing stress, and aiding wellbeing, as well as driving greater productivity.
Individually these benefits are powerful, but together they also make workplace experiences more enjoyable and memorable – both of which can provide valuable differentiation in the search for and retention of talent.
Here, Sarah Syson our Head of Design shares seven of the most effective and popular ways we’re using office interior design to satisfy our need for nature:
If you’re on the cusp of creating your perfect destination office, it’s vital to include biophilia in your office interior design. Just think, that with a little help from nature, you can create memorable and desirable spaces that promote wellbeing, happiness, and productivity in equal measure. It’s time to let the outside in.
